This Would Make Me Crazy.....




but for some reason, I find it absolutely charming as well.


I'm a really really really organized, 
neat & tidy person within my home,

however, when I cook my kitchen could look a lot like this :)'s









I wish I knew where this photo originated, 
but I found it on TUMBLR without reference.

I love TUMBLR for inspirational photos, do you?

"Hey, Sandy, is that our cousin over there?"





"She looks like us, except for the hair, doesn't she?
They call her Princess"
"& we're Sandy & Blondie."
"she's a Princess?"

Finding Inspiration in South Africa

as I was reading some of my favorite blogs on Sunday morning,
I came to Sharon's "Roses & Rust."
never does she disappoint, and I love her perspective on design aesthetics.

as most of you guys know, I've returned after a few months away from serious blogging,
and I know I need to revisit everyone I already loved and to find some new friends I may have
missed along the way.   so it's fun catching up on everyone !!!

& prophetic !!

herewith, Sharon's beautiful post, which I MUST show you:


prophetic because it features a HOME IN TEXAS, where I live,
it's just outside San Antonio and Sharon lives in South Africa !!!


When I feel like escaping from the daily grind of lunchboxes, laundry and school lifts, but I can't  physically run away, I resort to a mental escape instead. Here is a place that I could very happily spend some time out in. Based in the Frio Canyon area of Texas, USA, this home has beautiful views of the surrounding mountains and has the added benefit of being right on the Frio River.  


The stone homestead has a rustic, country feel, with contemporary touches that keep it up to date. It has a warm, inviting atmosphere, with loads of natural light. 


The white painted high ceilings prevent the rustic beams from becoming oppressive and create a beautiful backdrop for the eclectic light fixtures. 



There is a little area is to the right of the fireplace perfect for board games and beer.


Looking through the living room towards the kitchen....


...and the dining room on the right.


A beautiful open space, perfect for casual living and entertaining.


I love the extra large kitchen island that could easily accommodate a whole bevy of family and  friends prepping meals and chatting. 




Below is the separate scullery area.


The bedrooms are a great combination of luxury and simplicity.



There are mezzanine loft areas in 2 of the bedrooms for extra sleeping quarters. Very clever for accommodating families.





An outdoor shower adds to the bathroom options.


The open plan living area flows seamlessly onto the large enclosed patio which has a built in barbeque at one end and fireplace at the other.




And finally the beautiful river setting - perfect for gazing into the distance, enjoying the peace and quiet, the only sound to disturb the stillness would be the gentle sipping on a G&T!





here's the link to Sharon's blog 
go over & say hello for me


big hug, ladies !!!!!
